Bargain Hunter: £2 gets kid's meal voucher, plus two meals for a vulnerable child

 

Join the "Give Get Win!" campaign by 20 December and you could help spread Christmas cheer among vulnerable children as well as being entered into a weekly prize draw. The campaign, by kids' meal company Little Dish, aims to support the work of Kids Company, which gives practical, emotional and educational support to inner-city children.

The company – founded by mother-of-two Hillary Graves – asks for a minimum donation of £2, and every £2 pledged will pay for two hot meals for a vulnerable child at one of Kids Company's centres.

Those who donate will receive the equivalent value in coupons for a Little Dish purchase, from its range of 10 healthy, natural meals for one to three-year-olds, such as chicken & butternut squash pie, spaghetti & meatballs and fish pie. You will also be entered into a weekly draw for a selection of fun family prizes.

Apple iPhones on the way to competition winners

We had a tremendous response to our Vouchercodes competition to win two of the latest Apple iPhones. Some 11,000 entries were received by last Saturday's deadline.

To be in with a chance of winning, readers had to answer the following question: In her hit single "Price Tag", Jessie J sang, "We don't need your money, money, money, We just wanna make the world ..." what?

Most of you got the answer "dance", although there were a fair number of confused readers who decided the answer must be "sing".

The winners, who should receive the new green iPhone 5Cs – worth £469 each – in the next few weeks, were Sophie Higgs of Oxford, and Elen Pibott of Devizes. Well done to the winners and thanks to all the entrants.

Peel one job off your Christmas 'to do' list
